that the deficit is the top issue for so many in this country, how are they supposed to feel about the fact this candidate says hees not going to balance the budget until the end of the second term. >> our tax reform plan has been validated by harvey rosen out of princeton. even the president's current head of the council economic adviser said in 1986 -- a lot of additional jobs, so if you you add up the growth, we think $7 million worth of jobs, plus what we can save by reforming the tax code, it's fully possible. now, you mentioned defense spending. we're going to ramp it up, but do it at the same time the spending on overseas operations is going down. he wants to capture what he spent on afghanistan to help the military rest and reconstitute after ten years of welfare. >> it seems unfair when you all do it, too, those wars are already slated to end and they were paid for with borrowed money. when that isn't being spent, it's not saved for you too to do something else with. >> spending on defense, okay, the top line, if you're including those top line overseas expend we're going to be spe

to tax cuts and would say actually deficits don't matter right now. let's make growth a priority. and because it was a republican president that, therefore, you would have the congress much more willing to go along. wall street at this moment would see that as a positive scenario, stimulus by stealth. >> what i worry about is that neither candidate if they win is going to get to execute their vision, that they're going to be having -- like you marry someone but there are a lot of unruly relatives you never quite realized were there. coming out of the woodwork. and i worry -- i actually think both men acquitted themselves quite well in the debates. but the point is, they're in this larger environment, what is going to go on. i worry we're going to see muddling through instead of clear-cut tax reform, clear cut infrastructure program, clear cut ways to improve education. >> joe, i remember a couple of years ago -- >> i do it every year. >> but a series of wonderful articles, before the midterm for "time" magazine. you talked over a lot of the midwest, middle class. and you found th
deficit, invest in the skills of our people, invest in the ideas that we need to succeed in a new economy. and, at the time, back in the '90s, the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's program would hurt the economy and kill jobs. sound familiar? turns out, his math back then was just as bad as it is now. because, by the end of president clinton's second term, we created 23 million new jobs, incomes were up, deficits were down. so, iowa, we know our ideas work. we've put them to the test. we also know that their ideas don't work. because they have been tested, also. in the eight years before i came into office, we've tried what they're selling. we've tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest of americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free license to do what they please. here's what we got. fallen incomes, record deficits, and an economic crisis we're still cleaning up after. so we know what works. we know what doesn't. now, governor romney, he's a very talented salesman. and, in this campaign, he's been working

-partisan president but he's been the most partisan, dividing and demonizing. he said he would cut the deficit in half. he's doubled it. he said he would focus on jobs, instead he focused on obama care that kills job and said he'd bring health insurance down $2,500 a year, the cost of it for an average family. anybody here have their insurance go down 2,500? >> no. >> as a matter of fact, the average is up $3,000 per family. look, the president said that he would work across the aisle, he would meet regularly with leaders in the republican party. do you know how long it's been since he's met with the republican leader of the house or the senate on jobs or the economy or the deficit, since july he hasn't met with him. look, he just has not been able to deliver on the promises he's made. talk is cheap. a record is real and takes hard work, and he has not been able to accomplish it, and i actually have a record of accomplishment and that's why i'm running. as you know, i started a business. i actually helped turn around another business and helped turn around the olympics and you may have heard i was gov

, and president bush cut taxes and we went from having a surplus to having a deficit. so i think there's -- i mean if you look at the tax policy center they basically said it's very hard to see evidence of exactly how raising taxes figures into all of this. >> several things. i was talking about president bush 41 in 1990 when they raised taxes, and it was supposed to help us reduce the deficit, in fact, congress just spent all the money that came in. when poll significances raise taxes, whether it's in california, we've seen the devastation there. illinois, we've seen the damage to that economy, maryland. when politicians raise taxes instead of cutting spending, you have lousy economic growth. those states, and you can compare either the reagan recovery, lower taxes, spending restraints, less regulation versus the very weak obama economy, wore where he did all the opposite things of reagan and got everything that an economist would tell you gets bad in an economy. let's compare state by state. california versus texas. illinois versus florida. you cut taxes you get more growth. you raise taxes you
economy issue number one, but the deficit and the debt. you hearted that. they do feel that it's a form of generational theft, but they have some real questions. this is a center right campus, and there were some obama supporters, but overall i think the edge was to romney, about the there's real questions both about the authenticity of his recentering in the general election after campaigning as a severe conservative. you heard that. also, real questions about the role that social issues and the religious right play in the republican party. some of them were very fiscally conservative is saying this doesn't fit me or my generation. it's a fascinating wide-ranging issue of students very engaged in that pivotal battleground state of virginia. >> where have you been? you've been in florida, north carolina. you're in virginia with ali velshi, and is that sort of the theme in talking to some of these voters, john, that, you know, really it's the economy that is clearly the biggest concern, the biggest issue as they're heading to the polls? >> absolutely. the economy is the biggest issue. yo

talking about the deficit and the debt. concerned about the economy, the jobs. but that's not abstract. they understand that on a fundamental level and that's a key pitch the republicans have been making. that issue does resonate with people at their kitchen table. >> all right. great conversation. thank you, guys. >> i got one question. one question for you, don. one question. >> yes. >> we're both in ohio. it is all cold. how come you look like you're on gq and i look like the michelin man. >> you should be asking yourself that question, ali velshi. >> thank you, ali. thank you john avalon. appreciate it. now to some serious news here. a new storm is threatening to make recovery efforts worse in the northeast. our meteorologist chad myers is here to tell us how bad it could be. chad, we're hearing of freezing temperatures, what is going on here? >> freezing temperatures are really the problem. and then there is another storm, a coastal low. sometimes you can call them nor'easters, but this one doesn't qualify as a nor'easter just yet. we have a big rise in the jet stream here, where
the deficit, eliminate the president's health care law if he's elected president of the united states, and he's also going at what he believes to be a problem for the president in the final days of the campaign. he's been saying that the president has not been living up to his promises of bipartisanship in washington, and romney says if he's elected president, he will bring the country together. here's what he had to say. >> he said he was going to be a post partisan president. he has been most partisan in dividing and attacking. he also said he would cut the deficit in half. he doubled it. he was going to get unemployment down to 5.2% right now. we just learned on friday it's up to 7.9%. >> earlier in the day, the candidate's wife, ann romney, visited the back of the campaign plane and handed out breakfast food to the reporters covering the race for the last year and a half. asked how she's feeling about the race, she said she's been touched by the people she's run across in the final weeks of the campaign. people have come up to her and told her about their struggles in this economy right n
deficits when they propose $7 trillion in new spending between tax cuts for the well think and the pentagon spending for which they have no plan to pay. so saying you have a plan for the future doesn't mean you do. what he has is the one-point plan the president has been talking about, which is the same plan that got us into this mess in the first place. >> the main argument they're making, he did it in his opening remarks in the last debate and the closing remarks, is that more people are unemployed, more people are on foot stamps, more people are in poverty right now than they were four years ago, why re-elect a president who has a dismal record they say like this. >> the reason they're behind in this race, wolf, is because that's been their mantra from the beginning. everybody in this country knows where we were when this president took office and understands that we're in a better place now. we have more work to do. but the last thing we need to do is go back to the tax cuts for the well think, deregulating wall street, taking care of folks at the top. abandoning the middle class. that

failures. you haven't done anything for deficit reduction, for balancing the budget, for jobs creation. those are the issues that most voters say are determines their choice in this election and then, of course, he said it was about climate change and global warming but at the end he had the usual litany of marriage and abortion. also, it was all over the map and i just thought it was an ill-timed unnecessary endorsement when his city is suffering. >> five days before the general election. he's allowed to endorse -- >> and swing from new york to all the way to obama. >> i think he made a very important point, which is that hurricane sandy, the greatest storm that new york has ever seen in his life time may well be linked to global warming. jennifer granholm, last words with you? >> absolutely. it was a tipping point moment for him and what he is saying is that this storm should be a wake-up call across the nation and the person who will have a clean energy plan to be able to mitigate. so damages of us closing our eyes to climate change is barack obama. mitt romney has completely denied
that basically suggests raising taxes on the wealthy, you know, to lower the deficit and romney plan that suggests tax reform that ultimately will produce higher growth. you know, i'm not so sure that either one of those have been detailed specifically so that voters understand, but, nonetheless, that's what tuesday is all about. >> earlier this week, bill, you spoke to cnbc and you sounded a litt little, let's say, jaded about the election. let's listen to what you said and then we'll talk about it on the other side. >> we spent $5 billion on this election for what? to prove that it's a government of the superpac by the superpac for the superpac to prove that basically who wins at this point we'll be at four years in the future. but let's look to something different as opposed to this red and blue state theology that is basically the same. >> does the matter which candidates wins then or do you think we're headed for a fiscal cliff off this fiscal cliff either way? >> well, i think so. and i do think, although there are differences between romney and obama in terms of their policies
of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> so that's mitt romney in roanoke, virginia, today. gloria, let's just look at the latest swing state polling. they're showing iowa, new hampshire, wisconsin, they're all leaning toward obama. we showed another poll yesterday showing the president leading ohio, back to ohio, by five points. point-blank, gloria borger, five days left, is time running out for mitt romney? >> sure. there's five days left f. you look out those polls, while most of them are within the margin of error, he would like to have it flipped the other way. having said that, time's also running out for the president. look. this is a tight race. it's tighter than a lot of people ever expected. it's come down to those handful of states. and what it really comes down to is getting the voters to the polls, brooke. that's why there's an emphasis on early voting because you can bus your voters who you know vote for you and get them to vote early. but it's a matter of intensity and enthusiasm and, you know, when you talk to the romney people, they're complaining the polls based on the
. look at iowa, 5.2%. it's essentially full employment in iowa but they are concerned about debt, deficit and the quality of jobs you are getting. let's start with the ohio jobless rates. no gop candidate won an election without winning ohio. ohio makes presidents. today, 7% is the unemployment rate, less than when the president took office. that is better than the national average. they have been adding manufacturing jobs. not as many by any stretch of the imagination that they lost. look at florida and the trend of the jobless rate in florida. it's exactly where it was when the president took office. still higher than the national average. it has been coming down. housing is still a major issue here. in virginia, 13 electoral votes, jobless rate is low now. a 5.9% in virginia. but, it's still higher than when the president took office. essentially flat in virginia. it's going to be interesting because superstorm sandy could have an effect. power outages there. we don't know what tuesday is going to look like. that was a state affected by sandy. all of those really interesting trends, di
on deficit and debt. here's some of the folks we spoke to. take a listen. >> right now there are a lot of issue that i care about. for example, i am environmentally conscious. i've been a vegan since i was 9. i care about clean energy, a lot about things like that. looking around at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me that there are people who can't get jobs. even though there are a lot of other issues i care about, i think that should be the number-one concern. yes, it's a little better, but i don't think it was where it should be at all. >> you're a romney supporter? >> yes, romney. >> euyou're a romney vegan? >> yes, i am. >> that's awesome. start a romney vegan facebook page. i want to see how many romney vegans there are out. there the romney camp should start this up now. >> the older generation, i think they want reagan back, right? everyone like votes for reagan as the ideal republican candidate. i don't think necessarily -- one way or the other, you know, i never lived under reagan's presidency so i can't speak to that. our generation sees the other social issues that w

be true, anderson, but romney's plan overall to reduce the deficit would mean cutting spending. likely that would include fema. and of course his running mate, paul ryan, he released his budget last year and it called for about a 35% cut in fema. that was what his budget proposal showed. >> we'll see if he talks about that tomorrow on the campaign trail. dana bash, appreciate it. we'll be right back. idelity stock screener, you can try strategies from independent experts and see what criteria they use. such as a 5% yield on dividend-paying stocks. then you can customize the strategies and narrow down to exactly those stocks you want to follow. i'm mark allen of fidelity investments. the expert strategies feature is one more innovative reason serious investors are choosing fidelity. now get 200 free trades when you open an account. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes wit

, the president has a two point deficit. mitt romney is leading by two points. i don't think that's close enough for either campaign to feel confident quite honestly. i think that's why you're seeing this event behind me right now. just getting to swing states. we have roughly 100 governors, senators, other gop heavy hitters taking the stage behind me, rudy giuliani was out here earlier, bob mcdonnell, governor of virginia. kid rock kicked off this event earlier. not sure if we will see a gop version of "we are the world" but there is representation from just about every battleground state and the reason why is because if the romney campaign can't win ohio, they've got to cobble together a collection of other states to make the math work and that is basically the agenda for the next three days. >> jessica, what are you hearing from the obama campaign about how they feel about ohio? >> reporter: well, you constantly hear about the poll numbers, the early vote. there are so many numbers being thrown out by this campaign, sometimes you feel like you're at the betting track. but the bottom line is,
with the debt and the deficit. i have talked to so many women who say the number one reason that they're voting for mitt romney is $16 trillion in debt. you know that i felt as if president bush and everyone has spent too much money and that the spending has to be dealt with. mitt romney has said that is a day one order for him, to work on getting that spending under control. and i think that because of that, election day you're going to see a romney win. >> marsha blackburn joining us this morning. thank you for joining us. >> good to see you. thank you. >>> coverage of election night in america we start at 6:00 pm eastern time. how about a question? not even a question. >> wow! >> wow! >> i have no power. >> i don't forgive you. ahead on "starting point" troops carrying patients down the stairs after backup power has failed at another new york city hospital. dr. sanjay gupta will join us live with that effort there. what if there was a new way to deal with money that focused less on fees and more... on what matters? maybe your bank account is taking too much time and maybe it's costing too mu
in this election. now, change is a future where we reduce our deficit in a way that's balanced and responsible. i signed $1 trillion worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work, but if we're serious about the deficit, we also have to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says wh
the deficit, tapping into domestic energy resources and fixing the nation's public school system. but one thing that he has been trying to zero in on in this final stretch of the campaign, he's been going after the president's mantel, being a post-partisan president. in the words of mitt romney, the president has been what he calls the most partisan. here's what he had to say. >> yesterday, the president said something you might have heard by now that i think surprised a lot of people. he said voting is the best revenge. he told his supporters, voting for revenge. vote for revenge? let me tell you what i'd like to tell you. vote for love of country. [ cheers and applause ] it is time we lead america to a better place. >> as for the rest of this weekend, mitt romney will be heading back to what is perhaps the ultimate battleground state of ohio, where polls show the gop nominee is trailing the president by anywhere between three and six points. he is also going to be hitting the state of pennsylvania, the state that the obama campaign says is not in play, but is increasingly looking like a
the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message.
